Hi...I was the person behind the appearance of the Grateful Dead at SUNY Cortland. This show was indeed fantastic. It lasted approximately 7 hours in total (someone thought it was a short show, it was not...I completed the clean up around 6 a.m. when the sun was rising!). It was an epic performance and still holds the record at 7,200 people for the largest indoor assembly ever held in the City of Cortland. There is an epic story behind how the whole production took place which I can't possibly go into here! My voice can be heard in some of the "tuning" segments! Keep on truckin to this classic performance which will have it's 50th anniversary in 2021!

The Good Lovin, as usual, is superb, the rest of the show just good.

Subject: Nice 71 show
There's a lot better from 71 but this is great show none the less. I always love Second That Emotion and the Good Lovin' is epic Pigpen.

I love Jerry's wah-wah on Sugar Magnolia. I also hate the way they played Sunshine Daydream soon after this -

Sunshine daydream (stop)

Walking in the tall trees (stop)

Going where the wind goes (stop)

But that was still a few years off at this point. This show, like everything from '71, '70, '69, '68 and 1967 is five stars.

PS Thanks for keeping 'Good Lovin' intact - it's so much better this way!

Real nice Set 2.
second day in a row of an excellent "Good Lovin'"!
Reviewer: rschwz28 - - May 21, 2011
Subject: Early show?
I thought this might be an early show, till I added up the song times and encountered the 24 minute Good Lovin. Two hours, plus NRPS adds up to a good evening. Still it might be an early show - ticket calls for 8PM. Does anybody know for sure?

Jerry's voice and guitar are fabulous, as are the mix and sound quality. Plus Donna's not there to ruin Playing In The Band! Five stars.

Subject: Second That Emotion
I think these spring '71 shows mark the end of a era in terms of Jerry's singing. Here his vocal chords sound as strong as they did in '66. He can still belt it out like a young man. Every once in a while in '72 he pulls it off, and more rarely in later years, but at least as of this day in 1971 the singing sounds effortless.

Check out Second that Emotion.

And then the Good Lovin'. Bill Kreutzman, ladies and gentlemen.

Thirty eight years ago today the GRATEFUL DEAD were playin' in Cortland, where were you?

I couldn't be there in 1971 but I showed up today, where were you?

I highly recommend adding this show to your 1971 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.

5 Stars for the mix, recording, performance and transfer.

The "sound" of the GRATEFUL DEAD changed after 1971. I prefer the "sound" of the GRATEFUL DEAD from 1971. Pigpen's magic was and is always a treat, he was the music.
